    The Brown Bastard doesn't quite have the same ring to it tbf.

    Got 5 rides on Voltron on Friday. Needless to say, as a full package it is absolutely world class. Just an incredible experience from the queue entrance to ride exit. Europa Park has always been the best in the world and now there's even more reason to keep going back. As for the actual...

    Hope this doesn't mean they're gonna slow down the lift hill speed. Edit - clearly fake isn't it. You cant just lob up drive tyres like that in a few hours with no one noticing

    Why queue for hours?

    I've always avoided opening days but felt duty bound to be at Thorpe on Friday. It's the park I grew up with, from Wicked Witches Haunt and Magic Mill as a nipper, to watching Colossus, Inferno and Stealth being built as a teen. These days I find it pretty boring and the rides all below average...

    Managed to get 4 rides on Hyperia today. My initial ride on row 3 was very good but didn't hit as hard as I'd hoped. As expected though; it gets better and better throughout the day. Got lucky with a back row ride in the evening and it was absolutely hauling. There is plenty of airtime...

    Regarding the queue and overall aesthetic, I think it's fair to point out that... it's a construction site. Let's wait until it's finished before fully judging it.

    Original name of stealth at thorpe

    Should've gone with Jonny Rocket.

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I do find Taron to be can be inconsistent tbf. When it's running a bit slower it's still very good, but more in a nice friendly/fun way. And I can see how people may find it a bit of a let down. Sometimes though it's absolutely hauling around Klugheim and you get those twisted ejector pops 🤌

    4 days in Belgium - Day 4: No pigeons here

    I got on Kondaa a few weeks back and have similar feelings. It's very good but nowhere near my top 10. Despite all the airtime, it just feels a bit tame for some reason. Then the following day I finally got on Toutatis which blew me away. Not as much traditional airtime as Kondaa but a much...

    Alton Towers or Europa Park; which coaster-heavy European park has a stronger coaster selection?

    Europa for me. Not only do I prefer their big three, but the family coasters are always worth a ride because of the themeing.

    Skyrush - what tier is it in? Now vs. new restraints?

    Was elite before and will be elite after.

    What is your favourite coaster drop in the UK?

    Nemesis. The gradual descent as the ground disappears and you go into the first inversion 😍

    Changes coming to Skyrush for 2024?

    Must be getting new lap bars. I really like the current restraints but understand I'm in the minority there. A lot of people are put off riding it because of them. The new Intamin restraints are perfect, so I'm all for it if it gives the ride a new lease of life.

    ^ yep, the colour is a perfect blend to the grey British sky. There's a gap in the trees straight after the M3 exit on the M25, where you can get a brief glimpse of Thorpe from a distance. The sky is particularly miserable today and I could barely see it. Think they're doing the bottom of the...

    The grey skies don't help tbf. I've seen it up close on a sunny day and it the 'gold' looks great.

    The view from the car park is even more absurd. Looks like it's been built at the front behind the dome!
